The event was arranged by HM Queen Silvia's Care About the Children Foundation. The foundation works to provide grants to organisations and projects that support vulnerable children. During the digital event, ten new organisations were named that will receive support for their work to combat human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children around Europe.

The Queen opened the digital event with a video greeting, in which she said:

As the number of exploited children is constantly increasing we need to do more – and we need to do it together.
